ADHD 8 Week Skills Development Group
Macquarie University Psychology Clinic runs an 8 week skills development group for teenager and adults already diagnosed with AD/HD who want to better manage their condition including time management and social interaction. We run this program throughout the year, so clients can participate at a time that suits them. Sessions are provided by two provisional psychologists, under the supervision of a clinical psychology supervisor, Ros Knight. At this time of the year, the skills covered in the group may be particularly useful to Year 11 and 12 students who are preparing to sit their HSC.
Over the 8 weeks, the group covers the following areas:
- Understanding ADHD
- Organisational Skills
- Listening Skills
- Self Esteem
- Managing Impulsivity
- Anger Management
The next group will be starting on May 9 2016, at 6:30pm.
